Clients are saying:
"We really enjoyed the chance to work with Chris. He really took multiple weekend days out of his calendar to meet with my wife and I. He knows the neighborhoods and has good housing knowledge. I feel very comfortable working with Chris and look forward to working with him in the future!"
"Chris and his team handled everything from appraisal, painting and cleaning contractors, to staging professionals and legal counsel recommendations that made my sale very easy for me. Their periodic email and phone updates kept me up-to-date with progress that was most appreciated. Happy to recommend Chris!"
"We had the privilege of working with Chris Mundy for the first time this month. He came highly recommended by our wonderful neighbors. He stayed on top of everything, every step of the way, was always accessible, and he was on vacation all the while! He got us several high end renters, at full price, the first few days our house was on the market. We had a few challenges (not because of him or @properties) and he and his associate Anne Killarney (big shout out to her too!) handled them with integrity and honesty. That meant a lot to us. They both went out of their way and gave so much extra effort to make sure we were happy with the end result. Chris gives 1000% and we will absolutely recommend him to everyone we know and also hope to work with him again!"
""My wife and I couldn't have been happier with our experience working with Chris. The prospect of purchasing our first home in Chicago while living in San Francisco was intimidating. Chris was incredibly helpful, answering all of our questions and navigating us through the entire home purchasing process. Chris knows how to keep you at ease during a stressful time while making sure that every detail is covered.""
""Chris is a professional in every sense of the word! His experience and expertise in the Chicago market makes him one of the premier brokers in town. Chris could have collected his commission early on in our search but instead advised us against several purchases that we would have been unhappy with now that we have the perfect home. I have referred Chris to several friend in the past year and will continue to do so in the future.""
